Re: Lifting of Wage Freeze
I am sure by now you have had the opportunity to read Gary Pruitt’s message about the company lifting the wage freeze for 2010.
The Star-Telegram will be reinstating merit increases on January 1, 2010. Salary review dates will be adjusted forward four months. Ex: a) Your last merit increase date was September 1st. The new date will be January 1st. b) Your last merit increase date was March 1st. The new date will be July 1st. Although we continue to experience a challenging revenue environment and we’ll need to remain diligent in managing expenses, we believe it’s important to lift this wage freeze -- especially during this difficult economic climate. The Star-Telegram could not be successful without you.
